On Conflicts of interest #22, Kyle and Will cover the US rejection of Russia’s offer to extend the New START arms control treaty by one year with no preconditions. Washington deemed the proposal a “non-starter,” insisting the Russians give in to a number of demands before they will accept any offer.

Democrats and NeverTrump Republicans in Congress are advancing an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would attempt to block Trump’s troop drawdown in Germany.

The US special envoy to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, says the Taliban has agreed to a “reset” of the ceasefire deal reached with the US in February, which could mean a reduction of violence in the country as the Afghan government and the Taliban negotiate a long term peace agreement in Qatar.
